The main characters from "Knocked Up", Ben (Seth Rogen) and Alison (Katherine Heigl), do not appear in this "sort-of sequel", but references to both characters are made: A picture of Alison can be seen on the wall and Pete mentions getting marijuana cookies from Ben. Three other, more minor characters from Knocked Up, do appear in this movie as well: Charlyne Yi's character Jodi (an amiable stoner in Knocked up; now an employee in Debbie's store), Jason Segal's character Jason (one of Ben's best friends with a crush on Debbie in Knocked Up; now Debbie's persona trainer) and Tim Bagley reprises his role as OB/GYN Dr. Pellagrino.

If your running a business in 2013 and you are close to losing everything don't go and see this movie.
The problem with this movie is that Mann and Apatow pretend that they know what it is like to run your own business. Both of the main characters in the movie are not hands on involved in running either of their businesses which is probably the reality for both Mann and Apatow. They are one or two steps removed from reality.
What Mann and Apatow do know is what it is like to be with your kids 24/7 which is nothing like the real world. So in the movie both of the main characters are constantly up in their kids business and all of these scenes work as showing how underemployed overly concerned parents who have nothing to do all day behave.
If you want an insight into the lives of the Hollywood Rich and Famous this movie works as a perfect vehicle for that. The trappings of normality should be ignored.
Paul Rudd deserves a mention for making his stand-in replacement for Apatow an insensitive crude bro who is almost certainly nothing like Apatow.
